Discover the Art Gallery - Linda and Guy Pieters Fondation

In the heart of Saint-Tropez, the Linda & Guy Pieters Foundation exhibits in its private mansion house on Place des Lices the major artists represented by its owners for many years. Open on free admission, it is one of the most prestigious institutions of contemporary art on the French Riviera today.

 

For the love of art

On the Place des Lices, the Linda and Guy Pieters Foundation, an institution devoted to contemporary art, has moved into a private mansion that exhibits major artists of the 20th century.


For Season III, and to counter the gloom sown by the pandemic, they have chosen to focus on joy and hope with a selection of positive and colourful works. "Due to Corona, the organization of a cultural event is currently almost impossible.

To start the season of the traditional monumental exhibition in the streets of the city, we have installed 3 works from our garden" explains Guy Pieters. Eclectic, the 2020/2021 exhibition will feature, César, Ben Vautier, Christo and Folo, artists who have left their marks on their era. The gallery owner is lucky enough to have the cream of the crop in his address book, most of whom have been friends for over 30 years.

The artists of the foundation
The summer selection of Guy and Linda Pieters announces a large-scale program that is sure to amaze art professionals and neophytes alike. César, a major figure of New Realism César is known for his excesses, his sculptures, his compressions, even his Plexiglas creations... Exhibited on the square of the Musée de l'Annonciade, the famous thumb, here in an XL version, is one of the artist's signature works says Guy Pieters, a long-time friend of the artist who died in 1998. "It is the extreme quality of his work that is at the root of his success and longevity, for more than half a century he was able to take the turn of modernity without losing his creativity".

The latest retrospective of César's work at the Centre Pompidou demonstrated the coherence of his work.

Actual Exhibition   

 

Ben Vautier

Ben, art is a virus.
From Nice, Benjamin Vautier is a mischievous young man of 85 years old, who knows the value of words.

Bookseller in his youth, his shop became a meeting place where the main members of the École de Nice, César, Arman and others met. Friends with Combas and Yves Klein, it is not surprising that he is popular amongst 20 to 35 year olds.

His work entitled La vie ne s'arrête Jamais, is a positive reflection of his life since the fifties, to be seen in major private and public collections, from the Moma in New York to the Art Gallery in Sydney and the Museum of Modern Art in Paris and Nice. On July 18, his birthday, he will be present on the port, during the operation SAINT-TROPEZ COULEUR BLEU, a happening around the lighthouse with an ecological message for the preservation of heritage and the oceans.
 


From 27th June to 13th October
Open every day from 10 am to 1.30 pm and from 3 to 7 pm

 

Exhibition in town

César, Fabre, Folon

In 1982, Antenne 2 animated the TV screen with an unusual little flying character. Folon, watercolourist, painter and engraver of Belgian nationality, entered the light after a long road in anonymity despite his talent. Today, you can become famous at 25, but for post-war artists, you had to fight to exist and make yourself known. There was no museum, no social networks... only Connaissance des Arts, the reference magazine almost impossible for young talents to access.

"He made the cover of The New Yorker and Time several times, a supreme consecration opening the door to the arty crowd. Multiple exhibitions have been organized by Guy Pieters Gallery in Knokke-le-Zoute (Belgium), St Paul de Vence and of course by La Fondation Linda et Guy Pieters in Saint-Tropez.

The dialogue between art and science and the relationship between man and nature or the question of the artist as a warrior of beauty.

To be seen or seen again, the wax figure made of wood and metal that carries the moon and the stars on its head, a metaphor dear to this artist inspired by the cosmos.
